brandonspradlin80 completely fresh sound. And so not what I was expecting from Ben. But we gotta put the old stuff away sometime and just let something thats new and organic come out. And thats what these guys have done. I love it. Favorite track: to fight or fly.

I’ve been changing Tired from holding on But I’ll be patient Chasing dreams goes on for so long Every moment I’ve spent counting down the ways It’s all worth it To reach the end To watch the day break And when it comes And when it’s fine I’m looking back on All the broken times I never knew That all the roads I walked Would lead to you They all lead to you And when it comes And when it’s fine I’m looking back on All the broken times I never knew That all the roads I walked Would lead to you They all lead to you They all lead to you They all lead to you When I thought the world would break me Holding on to hope would save me Had to learn I had the strength inside Even when my hands are shaking Terrified of what I’m facing Had to learn I had the strength inside I’m done waiting I’ll create outside the lines Nothing’s fading Cause in the dark I reach for your light I’m still breathing Growing stronger in the night Knowing, praying There’s another morning in sight And when it comes And when it’s fine I’m looking back on All the broken times I never knew That all the roads I walked Would lead to you They all lead to you They all lead to you They all lead to you When I thought the world would break me Holding on to hope would save me Had to learn I had the strength inside Even when my hands are shaking Terrified of what I’m facing Had to learn I had the strength inside When I thought the world would break me Holding on to hope would save me Had to learn I had the strength inside Even when my hands are shaking Terrified of what I’m facing Had to learn I had the strength inside

This Has To Mean Something Please don’t go I miss you already It’s happening Could this be ending Can’t erase all these memories of us Don’t wanna see This happening now Cause I’m in disbelief Please don’t go I miss you already It’s happening Could this be ending Can’t erase all these memories of us Don’t wanna see This happening now Cause I’m in disbelief We both know we’ll never be ready It’s happening It’s no daydream Won’t let go of these memories of us Is what I see Happening Hard to leave such a huge piece behind Looking backwards in time I’ll miss you so My heart has been torn out All alone Trying hard to make it on my own Tumbling down in this dark mental hole Does he know that I grieve leaving home And it’s just that we needed to See things from a new view How can I Can I do this How can I Can I get through this How can I Can I do this How can I Can I get through this Through everything we found a way To understand To appreciate Looking back now it’s surely fate We did things our way Through everything we found a way To understand To appreciate Looking back now it’s surely fate We did things our way Please don’t go I miss you already It’s happening Could this be ending Can’t erase all these memories of us Don’t wanna see This happening Hard to leave such a huge piece behind Looking backwards in time I’ll miss you so We both know we’ll never be ready It’s happening It’s no daydream Won’t let go of these memories of us Is what I see happening Could we just talk through this Then I’ll know It’s really happening

When sorrow met its shadow Our hope fell silent Lost That it may be found in brighter seasons We sink into our thoughts Consumed What good can come from fairytales and long forgotten dreams This heart deprived of sunlight will unravel at the seams And leave us broken Still We breathe And in our broken hollow We see the darkness of ourselves Withering away in solitude We starve Absent in the many The slow decline unwavering We needed something more Reaching out from the wreckage Blindly grasping for anything There's something Something more Even when we feeling like giving up Even when we feel like letting go There's a light on the horizon That calls us home A splinter of faith Of something greater than ourselves Still We breathe Tomorrow will be better We've carried the countless flames From wreckage to reward We've seen the lows We've seen the highs And we choose to venture on We choose to push for more More healing More happiness More of us For life is not won in salvation and status To live with love Is to understand the journey

Standing in the wake of this train wreck My heart is beating faster in my chest I confess This depression terrifies me When I’m awake it’s like these thoughts They paralyze me Why me I don’t wanna feel like this I don’t wanna feel like this Time stops Weightless and cold The silence burns like fire While my fears unfold And there’s Panic Tooth to my cheek Too hard to speak without you Lungs drained of air Life feels unfair without you Come back to me Don’t leave me to dream about you Dream about you Dream about you How can I breathe without you How can I breathe without you Without you What is left to say when the sky falls I’m staring at your ghost in the stars And so far There’s not a day that I don’t miss you The feelings swell and overflow It’s like I see you Hear you I don’t wanna feel like this Why do I still feel like this Heart ripped Out of my brain I sit her talking to myself I think I’m going insane With my Tooth to my cheek Too hard to speak without you Lungs drained of air Life feels unfair without you Come back to me Don’t leave me to dream about you Dream about you Dream about you How can I breathe without you How can I breathe without you The only way to fix this The only way to fix this pain inside The only way to fix this Is a deep breath in As you say goodbye Goodbye Goodbye Goodbye Never gonna let you fade away Never gonna let you say goodbye Too many things I didn’t say Take a deep breath in I’m not ready to say goodbye Never gonna let you fade away Never gonna let you say goodbye

No I’m never letting go No I’m never letting go No I’m never letting go Oh no No I won’t I’m never letting go I had a dream And in this dream we were We were both happy Looking back on all that we had achieved Like trying not to overlook the little things And not getting lost in this desperation It’s been here all the time It’s fine It’s fine It’s fine It’s been here all the time It’s fine It’s fine It’s mine It’s fine I chose to be happy I chose to be happy It’s been here all the time Ignoring all the signs It’s been here all the time It’s fine It’s fine It’s mine It’s fine It’s been here all the time Forgot the choice was mine It’s been here all the time I’m fine You’re fine We’re fine It’s fine Hold on I’m never letting go I’m never letting go I chose to be happy Despite the pain surrounding Hold on I’m never letting go I’m never letting go I used to be happy It’s up to me to change things I chose to be happy While everything’s collapsing Around me Oh no I’m never letting go Oh no I’m never letting go

about

The last two and a half years have been such a rewarding challenge. Working on this project with the hopes of sharing it with our friends and the rest of the world has kept us going when times were tough. We wanted to address the inner struggles we all have and have difficulty talking about, the things that we all go through. These 6 songs are about realizing that we need each other and can get through life’s challenges, together.
